Year 2

Welcome Back!

 

A very warm welcome back to our first term in Year 2. We hope you had a lovely holiday and are rested and ready for the busy term ahead. Our class page is intended to give you an overview of the term ahead and also a few reminders!

 

Meet the Year 2 Team

 

I’m thrilled to introduce the Year 2 Team: Miss Lane, Miss Lynham & Ms Maidment

 

 

Autumn Topic 1- Land Ahoy 

 

Ahoy, me hearties! This half term our topic is called Land Ahoy!

We will be using this topic to investigate and research famous pirates from the past who sailed the seven seas and consider whether we would choose to be part of a pirate's crew or, if in fact their life choices may not have always been the best!

 

During our topic we will:

  • Write pirate stories with familiar settings
  • Science & Technology - Investigate floating and sinking. How do huge ships stay afloat?
  • Humanities- Name the oceans and seas of the world. Where would you choose to sail a ship if you were a pirate?
  • Research currant day sailors, our modern day intrepid explorers.
  • Encounter many pirate experiences that bring our learning to life!

Helpful Information

 

Homework - each week, pupils will be given 1 extension activity to complete at home.

 

Home Reading- your child will be provided with a reading book along with a reading diary. As we have such a huge focus on reading at Glyncoed, we ask that you listen to your child read at home and ask that they read for 10 minutes every day. We also ask that you leave a comment in your child’s diary that refers to how your child has read their book.

 

Uniform- school uniform is compulsory. All pupils need to be wearing the school t-shirt (blue/white), school trousers or skirt and a school jumper. Suitable black shoes must also be worn. We kindly ask that you label your child's clothing to avoid it getting taken home by another pupil by mistake. Lost property will be gathered each day and kept in a box in the Infant Hall.

  • PE days – pupils will need both indoor and outdoor kit for the Autumn term. We kindly ask for PE Kit to be kept in school for the duration of the week. Our P.E days are timetabled for Wednesday & Friday. The Glyncoed PE Kit is as follows:
  • White t-shirt preferably with Glyncoed logo and blue shorts/ blue jogging bottoms
  •  Indoor footwear -- preferably black pumps or plimsolls
  • Outdoor footwear- trainers. 

 

 

 

Wellington boots- as a large amount of time is spent learning outdoors, we ask that all children are provided with a pair of wellington boots. Please remember to label these with your child's name and class.

 

Class assemblies and concerts – the infant pupils will take part in a Christmas concert this year and class assembly dates will be confirmed shortly.

 

Morning lining up procedures- For safety reasons we kindly ask parents to enter the school grounds via the second gate on the junior yard. When the bell rings, children enter the infant playground via the middle gate. We ask that parents leave children at this gate and do not enter the infant yard. Teachers are unavailable for discussions in the mornings (child safety). Please see us at the end of the day or ring the office to make an appointment.

 

Dismissals- Year 2 pupils will be dismissed from the main infant entrance.

 

We look forward to learning together,

 

The Year 2 Team
